Men, High Blood Pressure and Exercise.

High Blood Pressure is a major issue in the western world. Why is that? Chronic stress, excess baggage, lack of exercise are all known culprits. Although we tend to associate it with the over fifties, younger people can develop it too and it affects both men and women.

How can you help reduce high blood pressure?

If you’re taking part in regular moderate cardiovascular exercise you can safely help reduce high blood pressure. Do you play golf? Walk the dog? Take the stairs or the lift? Do you think that’s enough?

The Government guidelines suggest you should be doing 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week.

We suggest you always seek medical advice before starting any exercise programme. If it’s been a while since you’ve done any physical activity then why not start with a gentle daily walk. As your fitness improves you can gradually increase the intensity. You will have more energy, it will lower your blood pressure and it’s a great way to ease stress, feel better and get some fresh air.
